Second round election polling stations open in Mobile, Birmingham at 7 a.m.
Residents of Mobile and Birmingham vote for the run-off municipal elections from 7 a.m. on Tuesday.
Runoff occurs for the following districts:
- Mobile City Council Districts 1, 2 and 6
- Birmingham City Council, Districts 4 and 9
- Birmingham City School Board, Districts 1 and 9
Registered voters can find their polling station by visiting the Alabama Secretary of State’s website and entering their address. A list of valid identity documents to be presented at polling stations is also available on the SOS website.
Polling stations open at 7 a.m. and close at 7 p.m.
Three mobile districts vote for members of the city council. Among the candidates is Levon Manzie, who died on September 19 at the age of 38. If elected, it will trigger a special election which will take place sometime after the new council sits on November 1.
“Despite the intriguing nature of these clashes, I think the turnout will be low,” said Thomas Shaw, professor of political science at the University of South Alabama. “For all the candidates involved, that means it will likely depend on the ‘take out the vote’ device of the candidate doing the best job.”
Additional information for voters in Mobile can be found on the city’s website.
